    Marie was a wonderful and kind mother in law and grandmother! She was always so loving and generous to all of us and we will miss her a lot. When Henry was young she would spend so much time with him out on the patio just playing and reading and laughing. Or watching animal videos in front room :) She meant so much to him and they had a special bond. She was his favorite person. She was over the moon when Juliet came along as well. She welcomed me with open arms when I met everyone and was always there to talk to and had great advice. Visiting her will always be a happy memory for me. She was amazing. I am so sorry for your loss.
